Moon Kyu Joo
ABSTRACT
For the purpose of estimating the status of physical growth of primary school students in Busan area, the author had performed and investigation and analysis on the physical integrated value for past 6 years of random sampled 656 students (male 374, female 282). The summarized results were as follows : 1. The most rapid growth age of body-height was 7-8 years old ad 5.9cm in male and 10-11 years old in female as 6.5cm, and the growth curve of body-height was crossed at 10-11 years old. 2. The most rapid growth age of body-weight was 9-10 years old as 3.1kg in male and 10-11 years old in female as 3.9kg, and the growth curve of body-weight was crossed at 10-11 years old. 3. The most rapid growth age of chest-girth was 8-9 years old as 3.1cm in male and 9-10 years old in female as 2.9cm, and the growth curve of chest-girth was not crossed. 4. The most rapid growth age of sitting-height was 6-7 years old in both sex as 3.3cm and 3.4cm, and the growth curve of sitting-height was crossed at 8-9 years old. 5. Using the physical integrated value was much simple and desirable at comparing with the areas. And the physical integrated value of primary school students on Busan area compared to Korean standard physical status was relatively good as body-height +0.33, +0.30, body-weight +0.33, +0.35, chest-girth +0.65, +0.57 and sitting-height +0.10, +0.20 with each sex.
